Maritime News, Most Popular

More crew were kidnapped at sea in 2016 than in any of the previous 10 years, despite global piracy reaching its lowest levels since 1998, according to the International Maritime Bureau’s (IMB) annual piracy report.

Worldwide in 2016, 150 vessels were boarded, 12 vessels were fired upon, seven were hijacked, and 22 attacks were thwarted. The number of hostages fell to 151.

“The continued fall in piracy is good news, but certain shipping routes remain dangerous, and crew kidnapping is a worrying trend in some emerging areas,” said Pottengal Mukundan, Director of IMB

“Masters should follow the latest management practices and where possible take early action to avoid being boarded. They should inform the IMB PRC or regional counter piracy centers for help and advice,” he said
